In response to Threads, a recently released competitor social media app from Meta, Twitter threatened to sue the parent business of the latter.
In a letter to Mark Zuckerberg, a lawyer for Twitter reportedly stated that the firm “has serious concerns that Meta Platforms (Meta) has engaged in systematic, willful, and unlawful misappropriation of Twitter’s trade secrets and other intellectual property.” This information was cited in a Semafor report.
“Twitter intends to strictly enforce its intellectual property rights, and demands that Meta take immediate steps to stop using any Twitter trade secrets or other highly confidential information,” Alex Spiro wrote in the letter.
Representatives for Twitter and Meta are yet to publicly comment on the lawsuit.
Recall that Meta launched its competitor to Twitter in 100 countries. The new app had garnered 30 million sign-ups less than 24 hours after launch.
